Thunder Lower the Boom at Thunderstorm 2021

The fourth annual Thunderstorm event, Thunderstorm 2021, is in the books. 

With thirty-five teams playing more than 80 games, and crowning six division Champions, it’s been a busy few days to say the least. But Thunder Fastpitch did their part, delivering three division titles, one runner-up and a host of semi-finalists.

Here are a few of the highlights: 

  • First Year Teams:
    • 11u White collected their first ever win, first tournament win, and first tournament Championship!
    • 10u Black and 10u Teal collected their first tournament wins! 
    • 9u, 12u Teal and 13u White competed hard in their first ever tournament action! 
    • 14u and 16u Teal earned their team’s first ever tournament wins and competed down to the wire in their bracket games! 
  • Returning Teams:
    • 13u Teal took second place to keep their string of top three finishes in tact!
    • 13u Black had a great run but fell in the semi-finals to the eventual Champion by one!
    • 11u Teal earned their first ever #1 tournament seed by going undefeated in Pool Play! 
    • Despite being short-handed due to injuries, 12u Black competed in every game (winning comfortably or losing by no more than 2 runs)! -
    • 11u Black had easily the most ridiculous comeback I’ve ever witnessed in a softball game to advance to the final, then won their first ever tournament Championship while the Arlington Park fireworks went off overhead! 
    • 16u Black defended their previous 14u championship one year to the day, getting revenge against a team that beat them in Pool Play to win their first Championship of the season! 
Check out the video recap below to see that despite our on field success this past weekend, being a part of the Thunder is about so much more than that.

Congratulations to all of our Champions and a big thank you to all of our participating teams, we hope to see you again next year!
